  3. cuz Big L said so...

    Yo, pay attention
    And listen real closely how I break this slang shit down

    Check it, my weed smoke is my lye
    A ki of coke is a pie
    When I'm lifted, I'm high
    With new clothes on, I'm fly
    Cars is whips and sneakers is kicks
    Money is chips, movies is flicks
    Also, cribs is homes, jacks is pay phones
    Cocaine is nose candy, cigarettes is bones
    A radio is a box, a razor blade is a ox
    Fat diamonds is rocks and jakes is cop
    And if you got rubbed, you got stuck
    You got shot, you got bucked
    And if you got double-crossed, you got fucked
    Your bankroll is your poke, a choke hold is a yoke
    A kite is a note, a con is a okey doke
    And if you got punched that mean you got snuffed
    To clean is to buff, a bull scare is a strong bluff
    I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
    I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

    Chorus: repeat (2X)

    "Speak with criminal slang" -Nas
    That's just the way that I talk, yo
    "Vocabulary spills, I'm ill" -Nas

    Yo, yo
    A burglary is a jook, a woof's a crook
    Mobb Deep already explained the meanin' of shook
    If you caught a felony, you caught a F
    If you got killed, you got left
    If you got the dragon, you got bad breath
    If you 730, that mean you crazy
    Hit me on the hip means page me
    Angel dust is sherm, if you got AIDS, you got the germ
    If a chick gave you a disease, then you got burned
    Max mean to relax, guns and pistols is gats
    Condoms is hats, critters is cracks
    The food you eat is your grub
    A victim's a mark
    A sweat box is a small club, your tick is your heart
    Your apartment is your pad
    Your old man is your dad
    The studio is the lab and heated is mad
    I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
    I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

    Chorus (2X)

    The iron horse is the train and champaign is bubbly
    A deuce is a honey that's ugly
    If your girl is fine, she's a dime
    A suit is a fine, jewelry is shine
    If you in love, that mean you blind
    Genuine is real, a face card is a hundred dollar bill
    A very hard, long stare is a grill
    If you sneakin' to go see a girl, that mean you creepin'
    Smilin' is cheesin', bleedin' is leakin'
    Beggin is bummin, if you nuttin you comin
    Takin' orders is sunnin', an ounce of coke is a onion
    A hotel's a telly, a cell phone's a celly
    Jealous is jelly, your food box is your belly
    To guerrilla mean to use physical force
    You took a L, you took a loss
    To show off mean floss, uh
    I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
    I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

    Chorus (2X)

    Yeah, yeah
    One love to my big brother, Big Lee
    Holdin' it down
    Yeah, Flamboyant for life
    Yeah yeah, Flamboyant for life

    yeah but what i want to know is how they got that expression
    did something crazy go down at 7:30 or at a place called 730

    "139 and Lennox is the danger zone" =139th street and lennox is a bad part of town

    so why 730
